This quantity is the most recent in a sequence of biennial tests of the clinical and technical caliber of the military study Laboratory (ARL). the present record summarizes findings for the 2007-2008 interval, in which ninety five volunteer specialists in fields of technological know-how and engineering participated within the following actions: traveling ARL each year, receiving formal displays of technical paintings, interpreting amenities, accomplishing technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. the general caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings is still remarkable, in addition to the relevance in their paintings to military wishes. ARL keeps to express a transparent, passionate problem for the tip person of its technology--the soldier within the box. whereas directorates have huge program-support missions, there's significant customer-support paintings around the directorates, which universally reveal mindfulness of the significance of transitioning expertise to aid instant and near-term military wishes. ARL employees additionally proceed to extend their involvement with the broader clinical and engineering neighborhood. This involvement contains tracking proper advancements in other places, conducting major collaborative paintings (including the Collaborative expertise Alliances), and sharing paintings via peer studies. often, ARL is operating rather well inside of a suitable examine and improvement area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

It would appear that, appropriately, the staff has now planned a much more aggressive program of research, as noted below. HRED is to be particularly commended for its success in leveraging ARO funding to advance the basic research foundation relating to human decision making as it is affected by Army command-andcontrol structures. : The National Academies Press, 2005. HUMAN RESEARCH AND ENGINEERING DIRECTORATE 33 will involve conducting experiments and observations to explore interacting network effects on human decision making.
In contrast, the Human Factors Integration Division conducts laboratory and field data analyses, develops modeling and human simulation programs, and performs applied research to ensure that soldier performance requirements are adequately considered in technology development and system design. 2 in Appendix A respectively show the funding and staffing profiles for HRED and the other directorates and indicate the relative levels of effort now devoted to basic and applied research and service activities.
The Dome Room has characteristics appropriate for experiments concerning the perception of sounds in space and the motion of sounds in azimuth with sound reflections. The new physical facility is impressive, and several well-qualified staff members are in place. It is not as clear, however, that they have identified the research questions that this HRED facility can uniquely answer. For example, What are the classic questions in psychoacoustics that can be revisited in this new facility? How will the staff see the work through from conception to publication?
